What Is the Story of An Early History of Fire?
Set in a medium-sized Midwestern town in the early 1960s, An Early History of Fire is the story of Danny, a twenty-something who lives in his childhood home with Pop, his German immigrant father. When Danny meets Karen, an affluent college student, at the bus stop, he discovers Catcher in the Rye, marijuana and a passion inside him that he never knew existed. As Danny struggles to discover himself and grapple with the repressed pain of his mother’s death, he pushes against the influence of his idealistic father, who keeps his only son on a tight leash. Ultimately, Danny must choose between a small-town life filled with familiar faces and a new world of unlimited possibilities.
